Program Schedule

Upskilling in Minecraft (Sydney) - July 4 - 9 am - 3 pm

Go over Minecraft basics, Settings, World Builder and NPCs. Collaborative Gameplay in classrooms.

Upskilling in Minecraft (Brisbane) - July 5 - 9 am - 3 pm

Go over Minecraft basics, Settings, World Builder and NPCs. Collaborative Gameplay in classrooms.

Module 1 - Planning Your Story - July 13 - 3:30 pm - 5:30pm

Great digital stories are personal, include universal story elements and involve collaboration at a variety of levels. They allow students to exercise creativity, self-direction and experiment with new technologies. 

Module 2 - Research & Dive Deep - July 20 - 3:30 pm - 5:30pm

Your research can take many forms and can include, but is not limited to, collecting materials, conducting interviews, audio and footage.  

It’s up to you what you want to include and how you want it to look.  

Module 3 - Write & Script - July 27 - 3:30 pm - 5:30pm

Your research can take many forms and can include, but is not limited to, collecting materials, conducting interviews, audio and footage. It’s up to you what you want to include and how you want it to look.

Module 4 - Bringing Narratives to Life - Aug 3 - 4 pm - 6 pm

Good stories start with a good script, but they don’t end there. How can we transform our stories, not just substitute analog stories. What elements would bring them to life? SAMR model link: aim is to redefine how we tell our stories.

Module 5 - Gather & Create - Aug 10 - 3:30 pm - 5:30pm

Using their storyboard as a guide, students will gather – or create – images, audio and video. Everything they choose will impact and set the tone for their digital story. Introduce concepts such as visual hierarchy, tone, and illustration when giving the students live feedback. This is also a great time to talk about Copyright, Fair Use, and Creative Commons. Students should use this time to record themselves reading their scripts and rewrite changes as they record.

Module 6 - Pull It All Together - Aug 17 - 3:30 pm - 5:30pm

How can we collaborate with others and contribute our expertise? Ensuring collaboration is authentic in this process is important. 

Module 7 - Share with Others - Aug 24 - 3:30 pm - 5:30pm

Brainstorm ideas for sharing beyond the classroom. Knowing that other people might see their work often raises student motivation to make it the best possible work that they can do.

Module 8 - Feedback & Reflect - Aug 31 - 3:30 pm - 5:30pm

Students need to be taught how to reflect on their own work and give feedback to others that is both constructive and valuable. Use Mentimeter or equivalent student response tool to get a quick overview of student thoughts.

Thank you Mike! I really found the 4 week course on ‘How to Motivate, Manage & Engage Your Students’ really interesting and great food for thought on how to improve my class routines and student engagement.

Kiki Tsoli

Banks Town Senior College

Mike, awesome course, fantastic resources and a real wake-up for someone who considers himself technically astute but not necessarily updated!

Shaun Hardy

I have been teaching for four years, and this was the best Professional Development course I have completed…even the students said
to me “you should do these things more often.

Ailie Granger

No fat, no rambling, just clean, concise explanations where needed. James was awesome.

Ethan Clews

I just wanted to say an extra big thank you for providing such a great service. Online, at night and in the comfort of home – with my two young children asleep in the other room – pretty awesome actually.
